Whether you’re suffering from chronic or acute pain, pain management is critical to maintaining your quality of life, health, and professional career. No matter if you’re experiencing pain due to arthritis, fibromyalgia, pinched nerves, bad back, heel spurs, or myriad other causes, chances are, you’re relying on some form of pain management to get through your day. Certainly, today’s advanced pharmaceuticals offer a wide variety of pain medications, whether over the counter or by prescription, but unfortunately, many of those bring the risk of serious complications and side effects, and can often cause adverse or allergic reactions. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we specialize in providing custom-made pain medications that address your specific needs, while avoiding the side effects and complications that may cause you additional distress.
The advantage of using a compounding pharmacy for your pain management needs lies in developing medications with your specific needs in mind. Although oral pain medications are widely available, topical applications can often provide better treatment when properly formulated. And for allergy sufferers, we can easily avoid the use of allergy-provoking fillers such as lactose, gluten, dyes, and preservatives.
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Liver damage
- Fatigue and drowsiness
Every individual is different, and custom-compounded pain medications can be developed to help people who suffer side effects and complications from their pain medications. For example, many patients experiencing gastrointestinal distress as a result of their pain medication might benefit from alternate forms of delivery, such as:
- Topical gels and ointments
- Troches designed to dissolve under the tongue
Each of these delivery systems bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, relieving patients from nausea, diarrhea, constipation, and other signs of gastrointestinal distress.
By designing customized compounds to suit each individual’s needs, American Integrative Pharmacy can more specifically administer needed dosages, rather than forcing patients to take too much or too little of the medication they need to alleviate their pain. Sometimes, a patient’s pain management needs might fall between the standard dosages offered, ensuring that the patient’s needs are either over-met or under-met. With custom-designed pain management compounds, each patient is assured of receiving the optimal dosage for his or her individual condition.
Compounded pharmaceuticals are particularly beneficial for allergy sufferers, enabling them to receive the medication they need without the allergy-stimulating inert ingredients common in many standardized medications today—including gluten, lactose, dyes, and preservatives. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we can create custom-formulated solutions to your pain management needs that avoid causing allergic reaction through use of fillers.
No matter the complexity of your medical profile, custom-designed pain management can provide effective relief with a minimum of complications and side effects. Particularly if you have a complex medical history or are experiencing unpleasant side-effects from your current dosages, contacting American Integrative Pharmacy is a great way to start you on the road to feeling better!
